Hi!

Does anyone know of the HDML type of motor launch the Kriegsmarine used in WW2

A photo or name would be ideal to start looking around for plans etc!

Happy New Year all!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi Chris,

I think you mean the counterpart of the HDMLs in the Kriegsmarine. According to my sources this were the so called "raeumboote", they were similar to the Fairmile A, B and C Motor launches in the Royal Navy. Used as minesweepers, escorts and patrol vessels. Look here:

I hope this will help.

Hi Chris,
If Horst is right, and you are looking for an R-Boote plan ,have a look here:http://www.dreadnoughtproject.org/plans/KM_RA6-8_1943// gesamt_ansicht_100dpi.jpg

Chris decided to build a Kriegsfischkutter, an exciting project.

Have you come across plans for the Luftwaffe 80 and 90 foot FLB rescue boats?

Hi all,
the Kriegsfischkutter (KFK) is similar to the British MFVs, although I never heard of such owned by the Luftwaffe. The abbreviation FLB means "FeuerLöschBoot" (fire-boat), but there might be another meaning during the war.

There is a book about the KFKs, which also contains plans here. Sirmar Models offers a KFK with plans-set here. I would also recommend a google-search with many pictures of KFK-models like this one.

Hi Guys

Thanks for the interest in the KFK.

As Christian quoted, I will be building a 24mt KFK from the Sirmar hull and plan set. As usual, I will be making a percentage of the fittings require to fit this boat out along with the Kriegsmarine crew that I already produce.

Please keep an eye on my website for the latest new on this very interesting project. It is anticipated to start around the end of February, I must finish my latest build first!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Please keep the links and photos coming on the KFK's please!


regards

Christopher

Hi All and seasons greetings!
 
Well its only took me 5 years to order a hull in 1:24/25th scale to build this model!
I have plans now that came from Kingston Mouldings and enlarged to hull size!
 
Will post some pics as and when work is carried out over the Xmas holidays
